Yeah IMO Voat should disable CSS by default until external references can be sanitized or whitelisted somehow.

I'd only allow a fixed catalogue of predefined CSS templates, where you can define some of the colors, fonts and background images through a form when selecting the CSS for the sub. Of course downloadable fonts are a no-no and images must come from a trusted image host.

Everyone has their own ideas about which image hosts can be trusted. Just never come here without VPN.

  1. I have always had CSS disabled. Sub-CSS is just like the cancer that was myspace. Why the fuck do you allow it to be enabled.

  2. They are probably paid to do it for ad agencies or are using it to inflate their 'visitor' rate for their own websites to sell ad's on.

  3. Maybe they are trying to DOX you. Not much they can do with just an IP. They can get a general area from an IP but unless your home address has registered static IP's (or IP's tied to domains that have your information in them) they can guess at who you are at best.

  1. Where did I advise people to enable subverse CSS?

  2. Hotlinking to images on your own domain (e.g. pembo's pembo210.com) wastes bandwidth. No traffic is being driven to the site itself, and you can see for yourself whether the site has ads.

  3. SRS are on the SoRoS payroll. If you remember, Clinton got access to three-letter agency spying tools given by her friends on the inside. Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc. all work with Clinton Foundation. They always leave backdoors and undisclosed zerodays for the three-letter agencies to exploit. Put two and two together. Your computer and/or router running linux isn't going to save you. @inthetimeofnick left Voat because he had saved all the evidence of what SDBH has done on his phone, and they wiped his phone as a warning shot.

Ok, ok. Lets clear it up a little bit ;)

I was not implying that you suggest that any verse should have CSS enabled. That was more of a statement to all rather than to you. Sorry that I was not more clear.

Addressing #2. Advertisers are dumb. No, really. They are very, very, dumb. You can sell them "impressions" without specifying what/how/etc.. If your contract is clever you can get them to believe that the 1x1 pixel is only being shown on your website so every time its used it is an impression that they might buy content for (Seriously, most do not check for this, even if they say they do).

Number 3. We can debate that for ages. I was not calling you out, just agreeing that it is possible and with enough resources you could indeed dox someone. It would take connections, cash or both to do so. Nearly no solo operator has enough time/money to dox every single 1x1 image impression. This will bring up the "unique" image impression stuff I know.. but you understand what I am getting at.

I am more than aware of how the security of the systems I design and build is impacted by outside tampering. You do not need to sell me on the idea, ive been trying to sell it to everyone else for over a decade.

However. With all of that said. You make good points. Thank you for the thought out response.

@SarMegahhikkitha is a JIDF shill and mentally ill. The IP scan thing was done in SdBH as a joke to scare users who know nothing about the internet. Wasn't even a secret, as your IP was shown to you in a bar at the bottom of the screen.

He is just scared because he lives in a faggot country where you can get fired for being a fascist.

VPN to be on the safe side. You can't know about these things ahead of time on every site you go to.

Well that stinks. On a side note if anyone wants to see the /v/paddyspub css I post it semi regularly in the sub or whenever there's the littlest change to help people out working on their own. If you can't find it in the sub and want it just let me know and I'll repost it. It's still a work in progress though I've been admittedly lazy about it lately. It's base is /v/typogra because that css already had the light and dark settings built in. I'm gonna get working on restoring the background on the dark side and making the light side a little easier on the eyes. Anyways we just try to be good voat citizens at the pub. If we get to spammy w/ the music sometimes just go ahead and block us. It won't hurt our feelings. We mainly post b/c we like to see what each other is listening to and check out new music.

Would someone please post an example of what's going on here? And please cover some basics like:

1) Are they only able to dox you if you go to one of their subs?

2) Is 'pinging you', as one user here noted, the SRS subs messaging you?

3) I have a static IP for my home. How big of a danger is that in general?

4) What will they do with whatever information they collect?

5) What's stopping anyone here from doing the same thing to them?

since noone else covered it, pinging you is this- @SocksOnCats which just sends a msg to your inbox notifying you that your name has been mentioned. Its used to call people to a thread mostly. That and pingbombing @HenryCorp cause hes a cunt.

I have to agree with part of the above statement. @HenryCorp is a giant cunt.
